I haven't posted my individual CICO numbers this week, but I have ended up with over negative 3500, so I do hope to show a pound loss tomorrow morning for weigh-in. We took my SD out for her birthday dinner, and I made a "better choice" and am fairly certain that I did not go over my calories, and now I will drink lots of water this evening to hopefully not have the Sodium Curse appear in the morning.

My exercise minutes for June are reflected in my tracker. I changed my ticker to reflect the fitness minutes for June. I set a goal of 1500 minutes for the month, and it looks like I will exceed that number. I am pleased with my progress with fitness since my early days with Sparkpeople, when it was quite the accomplishment to walk down to the end of the street to the corner. The endorphins have proven to be as helpful to me as the exercise itself, because there is quite a bit of ongoing family stress.

Other than preparing nutritious meals, tracking, and exercising, I am not getting as much done as I would like. Summer is my break from my job, and I had the best plans, for me. I need to get back to those plans.

Have a good day!

    I'm enjoying your deliberate positive outlook on life. You have found something positive to say every day. Even days when life wasn't cooperating, you found sunshine somewhere.

    Life gets in the way sometimes. You COULD do the things on your list, but you might miss the butterfly or the really good book to read.

    Glad your weigh in was positive.

    Tammy, emoticon on the calorie deficit !!
    I know what you mean about not getting as much done as you would like. There always seem to be extra activities just waiting to jump in on some of your time. Keep a "to do" list nearby and see if you can carve out some tasks into 15 minute chunks. It makes it easier to fit in 1-2 things in a week extra that way.

    It sounds like you are doing a great job with your fitness!! I know riding your bike is a huge part of it, and when you find something you enjoy doing, that makes all the difference in the world!

    Making better choices, making smart choices, and planning are part of the equation and the journey. Keep at it!!

    Review your plans you made for yourself for the summer. It isn't too late to adjust them and start working on them!!

    Well done, you are taking charge of your own needs, It is a really good move. I admire how you do challenges, I never knew how to get in to them. I just discovered I do not get a lot of E-mails but I am not really looking for the numbers. The only numbers for me are my A1C for diabetes, my cholesterol and Blood pressure for heart health and the amount of exercise I can do.
    I am buying fingerling potatoes, because they are so small I get my little spuds that I love but no more mashed spuds and no big baked ones either. That was what I learned from the Frittata recipe. Now I am going to make them more often because I cook them in a skillet.
    HUGS you are doing great, keep up the momentum. emoticon PAT.
